Requesting a “manual” check for a payroll shortage

The correct term is “Off Cycle Check”. If your weekly payroll check is short more than an 8 hour day you may request this check. They will ask if they can pay you the missing shortage next week. They have the right to ask and that is your decision. If you still require the “off cycle check” they have 24 hours to get you that check. They do not present you with the rquested check on the spot, it will take the 24 hours to process it through the system. This is listed under Rule 26 in our UTU Agreement.
